A first for any Masonic Lodge, the consecration of the Nomadic Lodge took place at the showground in Winslow on Friday 14th of June.
The new Lodge has been established for those Freemasons with an interest in caravanning, camping and motorhomes. It will meet several times a year both in Buckinghamshire and nearby counties. The Lodge meeting will take place in the nearest Masonic hall to the chosen site and will be followed by a festive board or barbeque back at the campsite which will be open to friends and family members who are attending the event.
Friday’s consecration was also unusual as it was held in a large marquee at the showground where many of the founders had gathered in an array of caravans and motorhomes. A spectacular ceremony was conducted by the Provincial Grand Master, John Clark and Worshipful Brother Michael Clanfield was installed as the Lodge’s Primus Master.
Over 160 attended the event and the Lodge is keen to welcome members and guests from Buckinghamshire and further afield.
